Marching Band (Almost) Final

As of this morning, November 24, we officially have one marching band performance remaining this fall - the Christmas parade is NEXT MONDAY, December 1, at 6:30 p.m.  Congratulations to John Shillito and the ZWHS football team on another great season that ended at the State semi-finals over the weekend.  Said season saw the ZHSMB march in pretty much every kind of weather one can think of...

Here are some details for next Monday:

  • Students need to report to CITYSIDE dressed and ready to go by 6:10 p.m.  
  • We will be in full uniform except for hats and shoes.  Students may wear weather-appropriate footwear as well as fun Christmas-themed hats.
  • Students may decorate instruments with festive items as long as the instruments are still in proper working order
  • There will NOT be a school vehicle to transport large equipment.  Students are responsible for getting drums, tubas, etc. to and from the parade.
  • We should be done with the performance by 7:00 p.m.
  • Following the parade will be the annual awards night in the auditorium.
Speaking of awards night, I hope you can all make it to this fun event!  We will start in the vicinity of 7:45 - there is a dance rehearsal on stage until 7:30, but we usually aren't ready much before then anyway.  We will do some fun awards and some serious awards and view the season highlights video.  Should be a grand time!  Plan on about an hour for the festivities.

Thanks for your support this season!  It was great seeing and meeting so many new parents at conferences a couple weeks ago.  Glad you and your kids are enjoying what we are about here.  let me know if I can do anything - kwalker@zps.org
